Please review the xls which lists these requests and consider in particular semantic equivalence and clinical relevance. This is part of the ongoing collaborative work effort between SNOMED and ICN there are several requests for new concept additions to SNOMED.
Dear all, SNOMED International has in the past engaged with clinical groups through the use of Special interest Groups (SIG’s). Currently we have six clinical SIG’s and 2 functional SIG’s. Whilst this has proven effective in the past, it is also an approach that is not saleable. There are a number of issues relating to why this is the case that are detailed in the presentation - The future of SIGs v1.1, available in documents The changes to the way in which we engage with clinicians in the future has been discussed and agreed with both the Management Board and Healthcare Professional Coordination group (HCPG). The overall approach is agreed, but there maybe minor changes in the way we implement these changes following discussions with yourselves. Fundamentally, the exisiting SIG’s and future clinical groups will adopt an approach of using virtual groups to allow discussion, identification of work priorities and dissemination of documentation. Each group will have its own site on Confluence, which will be able to be accessed through a clinical portal. The sites will be open for anyone to view. however, to partake in the discussion will require a log-in. The timetable for change is to adopt the new approach from April 2017, when the Confluence sites and clinical portal will be available. If you have any worries or concerns with regards to the changes, or you have suggestions regarding the way they will be implemented, please contact myself (firstname.lastname@example.org).

To the participants of the Nursing SIG, The Dutch Nurses' Association has, in cooperation with Nictiz (national release center of SNOMED CT) developed a Dutch nursing subset of patient problems. The actual list can be found under the section 'Meetings' (2016-07-19): https://confluence.ihtsdotools.org/display/NURSINGSIG/2016-07-19+TBD+-+1400%2C+1500+or+1600+UTC+-+NURSING+SIG+Meeting Also a document has been uploaded (under 'documents') in which more background information about the development of the Dutch nursing subset of patient problems and methods used: https://confluence.ihtsdotools.org/display/NURSINGSIG/Reference+documents I hope you find time and attention to review our subset: 1. Is the Dutch nursing subset sufficiently comprehensive for electronic recording? 2. Are the terms of each patient problem unambiguous and understandable? 3. Are the terms professionally acceptable for nursing practice? The 19th of July we will discuss the nursing subset and your comments and feedback in the Nursing SIG meeting. Thank you very much in advance! Best regards, Renate Kieft
Please will members add the relevant subjects and definitions together with any examples
Following on from Judy's presentation on Nursing Terminologies this thread will allow us to keep track of developments
Thank you to Ismat for the questions raised at the SIG. I encourage Ismat to add her questions into this thread for wider discussion
